This Japanese species was introduced to gardens over a century ago, and has produced a wide range of popular forms, varying from large shrubs to dwarf domes of tight foliage, such as 'Golden Princess', also known as 'Lisp'. All varieties share the characteristic of flowering on the current year's stems, which means they can be pruned very hard in spring to keep plants compact and shapely. Like all yellow-leaved varieties, 'Golden Princess' should be grown out of full sun, which scorches the leaves, but also away from dense shade where they go green. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
